19 Players took part in the New Years Day sweep at Al Hamra Golf Club and what a great day it turned out to be for Amir Mian even if there were a few sore heads. With the golf course set up in fantastic condition and the fantastic weather, we were set up for a treat. Cavan Bickel got off to a flying start and made it even better when he birdied the 6th. He also went on to make a 2 at the 11th knocking it to a foot and went on to score a great round of 38 points and claimed the 3rd spot. Sharon Darbyshire also got off to a brilliant start having two 4 pointers in the first 5 holes! She then went on to be very consistent and scored 39 points and claimed 2nd place.
But the round of the day came from Amir Mian who scored an amazing 41 points and claimed his first ever victory. Amir got off to a slow start but managed to recover from the 4th onwards and didn’t make anything worse than a net par for the rest of his round. He said that he felt really in control of his game making pars at 12, 13 and 14! He was pleased to be able to buy everyone a drink after the game and enjoy his victory.
In the 2s competition, Bob Messham and Cavan Bickel made 2s at the par 3 11th and both received 95 Dirhams each.
Tournament Winners: 1st Place Amir Mian (41), 2nd Place Sharon Darbyshire (39), 3rd Place Cavan Bickel (38)
